Review: We Play Sway, The Game Of Debate And Silver Linings

Two female entrepreneurs launched Sway: A Game of Debate & Silver Linings, a party game that inspires optimism by challenging players to find the good in every seemingly bad situation while simultaneously making them laugh out loud.

If you would’ve told me that I would spend a Saturday night in a living room playing a board game, I wouldn’t believe you. I mean we’re all attached to our phones that touching a physical game is almost a thing of the past.

Yet, there I was acting out, competing and judging a multitude of challenges all thanks to Sway founders Margaret Marshall and Rachael Kauffung. The major bonuses of the game – you can only discuss the positives and essentially, everyone can be a winner of hilarious antics.

During each round, we had 30-second debates on topics ranging from Michael Jackson to The Milky Way with the occasional challenge such as mentioning Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Beyond the game, the bigger picture behind Sway is to reemphasize human connection and focusing the mind on the positive of the world. This is one of the best packaged game inside of a small box that I have come across in a long time. Not only has it unleashed creativity, but also found a way to spark my interest in playing more games and taking a break from my phone to connect over the simple things.
